Let’s start here….with pissing you off.
Attacking Barack Obama, blaming Barack Obama, making Barack Obama the focal point, simply thinking that Barack Obama, all by himself, can magically…
….Defeat The Machine… is counterproductive. And frankly, stupid.
Barack Obama is not the MIC, is not the Financial Sector Robber Barons, is not the Justice Department, is not the Congress…..Barack Obama is NOT The Ruling Class. Barack Obama is not The Machine.
And it is The Machine that is our ‘enemy.’
It is The Ruling Class that runs the Machine, not Barack Obama. The Machine existed long before Barack Obama. And unless WE (not just Barack Obama) defeat The Machine it will be here long after.
Barack Obama cannot defeat The Machine on his own, he needs allies. He is not going to find those allies in The Ruling Class. So who does that leave???
If WE want an ally in a powerful position on OUR Fight Against The Machine, how does transferring our outrage at The Ruling Class on to Barack Obama advance our goals?
That is falling into a trap, a wedge trap, a divide and conquer trap, a smoke and mirrors for the Ruling Class to hide behind trap.
It may be satisfying to have a single person as the enemy, it may be mentally convenient to focus our ire at a single personified target.
I am not going to talk about what Obama has or has not done right or wrong. That is not the issue. The issue is Humans vs. The Machine. People like you and me vs. The Ruling Class.
It is a Class War. A war between 7 billion humans who want to live in peace and a small coterie of the Power Elite who are only interested in power and profit……to the extent that they will allow the planet to become uninhabitable through Climate Crisis and kill billions of us to pursue their self-interest.
If you blame THAT on fucking Barack Obama, if YOU fall for that trap……they win. If you make it about US vs. Barack Obama……they win.
It is up to US, it is up to YOU to fight The Machine. How does making someone who AT LEAST makes noises about being on our side help that at all, in any sense, in any way? We can try to make him an ally, or we can make him THE enemy. Thus ignoring the real enemy and allowing them to continue their destruction.
Barack Obama is NOT going to defeat The Machine by himself. It is up to US to do that.
Use your power and energy to fight the REAL enemy, The Machine.
